Nashi Pear and Celery Salad

2014-03-02 15.28.42

My generous neighbor has a large established garden with some prolific fruit trees. I got some of his nashi pears as a gift.  I love eating them like one would eat an apple, but for the rest of the family I had to combine the pears with some freshly harvested celery to make  a crunchy salad.  I had to make it again the next day, always a sign that the recipe was a good one!

1 large nashi pear

1/4 head of celery

5 cm of leek

1 1/2 table spoon fruit scrap vinegar

4 table spoons olive oil

salt and pepper

You can add chopped nuts and a bit of strong cheese if you have any on hand

Chop everything up and mix with a dressing made of the vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. Serve with fresh bread, and on a hot day, a glass of chilled Prosecco.
